3.3v PCI

I want to use multiple tuners but most modern motherboards only have 3.3V slots with a single 5V slot for legacy cards. Any motherboard old enough to have multiple 5V slots is too slow to do HDTV editing, which kind defeats the purpose of a PCHDTV.

Given that the PCHDTV is never going to fit in a 3.3V slot, yet theoretically the chip is designed for 3.3V, is it possible to grind out a 3.3V notch in the card and still have it work?
